    I think the statement needs to be defined alot better though or at least explained better. There are definitely bad side effects to the artificial sweeteners found in diet sodas and regular sodas are just plain high in calories. Well, I may have found an answer to the question and it’s Zevia. Zevia is an all natural sugar free alternative to diet soda and it tastes great. It contains stevia which has been used for centuries in China and is natively grown in South America. Zevia is a carbonated stevia supplement and has given me a choice other than the currently marketed diet sodas.
